Simulation of Dynamic Crack Propagation in Elastic Plates Using an Interface Element (Report II)(Mechanics, Strength & Structure Design)
Search this article
The stability of the initial crack under static load is analyzed using the proposed interface element. Based on the understanding of the phenomena at the transition from the static and the dynamic behavior, the influence of various factors, such as the pre-loading, the surface energy, the bonding strength and the size of element on the crack speed under steady propagation is investigated.
